I'm a bit pissy about something right now

Posted by   + Show Post

The case for war is being made in the halls of our lawmaking bodies and our president is elsewhere.  It looks as if he is not engaged in the heavy responsibility of helping our lawmakers make the awesome decision about war.  He's wishy-washy on what he wants to do and he is not taking responsibility for that. 

I'm sorry, something stinks in this scenario

Mooo!!!

Quoting kaylamom2004:

 BAAAAAA!!!!!


Quoting Raintree:

More like if you know the law and how it works.

You don't need congressional approval for a strike. You do for war. The end.

I'm not for a strike, war or otherwise in Syria at this point. Try again.

Quoting kaylamom2004:

 If you believe what he says ... you're just another one of his sheeple.


Quoting Raintree:


Quoting kaylamom2004:

He has come right out & said that he doesn't believe he needs APPROVAL to strike! Um......what constitution have you read your moron!!!????

He needs to focus on the BS in this country & with our own people & stop sticking his nose elsewhere in business that doesn't concern us.

You don't need approval for a strike. You need it for war.

War Powers Act. 19...73 I think.

Thanks for proving my point above, though.

As I replied to RandRmomma, I'm not saying he should be there for this decision. I'm just saying there are times I believe he should've been there (important and/or gridlock) and he was not there or seemingly not available either. I'm not just blaming him either I know previous presidents have done this, and I'm sure future ones will ad well. That's doesn't mean that's how it should be handled. Again I'm not saying for all meetings and maybe not even this one, but there are those I think he should be there for or available for...


Quoting lga1965:

What are you talking about ?

You just don't like him and you're trying to justify your dislike by making things up.

CM seems to attract negativity.




Quoting ramita:

He's rarely been there when important decisions ate being made. This isn't the first time he's been elsewhere when congress is trying to decide on something important (of course maybe not war but other important things) or are in a gridlock.

Someone who "baas" at people wants originality.

See- this is what the President deals with. If he goes ahead with a strike- he's BAD! If he asks for congressional approval- he's WEAK and BAD!

Meanwhile, if he doesn't do ANYTHING about Syria until better intel comes along- he's BAAAD, WEAK and a baby killer!

Can't win. Even if he were to do the right thing.

He is the one advocating for war


Quoting lizzielouaf:


This isn't HIS country, it is OUR country. 

Quoting snookyfritz:

I didn't say attendance.  But in the vicinity would be nice.  He's leaving his battle to our lawmakers and not clearly addressing the citizens.  When something this serious is looming in his country, he should be here.   


Quoting RandRMomma:

I was unaware of a requirement that the POTUS bad to be in attendance when important decisions are being made in Congress after spending days in meetings with various members of Congress and other leaders. He's doing what any other POTUS has done before him.

No. He's advocating a strike. McCain/Graham want a fuller operation.

He is doing what every president before him did. Meeting with a crapton of lawmakers in smaller groups and conversing with foreign allies.

You know that's not ever going to be the end of it Syria.  I find it convenient that the UN inspectors are not being heard from.  I'm going to use Hans Blix as my barometer and so far he's a no go
